I was at the security checkpoint in the airport last week with approximately 14 minutes until my departing flight. Of course, as fate would have it, I was trapped behind someone who had to de-robe from lace-up wedges and remove 97 bracelets. I'm all about accessories, but in this situation it's important to remember that it is possible to be stylish and comfortable without lots of extras while traveling. Nothing says "I've got it together" better than an effortlessly chic gal who is efficient in the airport. Trust me.
